Client Testimonials

At EQ, we value client feedback and aim to provide the highest level of service to each and every client.

Take a look at what our current clients say about us.

“Having identified the potential to make a research and development claim (R&D) for the product development work we had undertaken we realised that we needed support to make this a reality. The advice and guidance we received from EQ was exactly what we needed in terms of how to structure and make a successful claim.”

Ian Harragan, Director

i-confidential

EQ

“Having decided to transition to employee ownership, we required expert assistance to obtain HMRC clearance for the transaction. EQ accountants came highly recommended as having expertise in this field. From the initial meeting we found them very easy to deal with, they understood our requirements and adhered to the transaction timeline. The process was very smooth and tax clearance (achieved on schedule) was key to our plans.

I would have no hesitation in recommending EQ to anyone considering Employee Ownership.”

Craig Morrison, Managing Director

Palimpsest Book Production Ltd

EQ

“I’ve been impressed with EQ’s specialist agriculture and tax knowledge, which are relevant to my businesses. Their people are easy to communicate with and explain everything clearly. The diverse nature of my business activities means that various unconnected issues need to be considered, but EQ are able to see the whole picture and advise accordingly.”

Duncan Hunter

D & I Hunter, Hunter Holiday Cottages, Kintyre Country Homes Ltd

EQ

“EQ helped us from the start of the business last year and provided us with so much sound advice and help in getting us to where we are today. As a financial services business we have additional reporting requirements and they have been a wonderful support. We’ve developed a great working relationship with the staff and they are all highly experienced, knowledgeable and friendly.”

Wendy Ordon, Director

Contego Life Limited

EQ

“We moved to EQ Accountants in 2016 on the recommendation of our bankers. It was a difficult decision at the time in breaking a good relationship with our existing accountants, but we felt it was time to move on to a bigger firm as our own business had grown significantly. From the outset we received excellent restructuring and remuneration planning advice and support. Not only are they very professional and proficient accountants but they are a thoroughly pleasant bunch of people to do business with. I would unhesitatingly recommend EQ Accountants.”

Karen Harris, Director

Blueprint Recruitment Ltd

EQ

“I have used EQ as my financial advisers for both my business and personal affairs . Not only do they provide a quick, personal response to any of my requests, they are also always thinking ahead and have provided valuable advice and tax planning over the years. I would have no hesitation in recommending EQ as they represent excellent value for money.”

Gordon Deuchars, Managing Director

GA Engineering

EQ

“Following our move to EQ/Amber, we have been delighted by the advice and support provided. All our issues can be addressed by the one team, from a PAYE coding notice query to a business acquisition.”

Nick & Tony Price

My Care (Grampian) & My Care (Tayside)

EQ

“Entrepreneur and accountant may not appear at the top of your list as possessing a natural synergy, but I can testify to the catalytic synergy when EQ became involved in our businesses. I have constantly been delighted by the proactive, entrepreneurial passion and lateral thought which is applied to every situation. They are not just our accountants – they are an integral part of our management team, being fully involved in our business and providing rather unique, proactive advice, leadership and a personal service, which is sadly missing from larger city accountancy practices, at a country rate.”

Ron Kitchin

The Kitchin, Castle Terrace Restaurant & The Scran & Scallie

EQ

“We have dealt with EQ over many years and are hugely appreciative of the friendliness and quality of the team. We benefit from their detailed sector knowledge and fully trust in the service provided, no matter what the query is.”

Alistair McMenemie, Managing Director

EQ

“We enjoy working with EQ. As well as providing the normal compliance services, they have been able to provide advice and support at a strategic level over the years and are always quick with a response. A large part of any working relationship comes down to personalities and we’ve always found the EQ team friendly and approachable and we trust them to do the best for our business.”

Brian Frame, Managing Director

Rautomead Limited

EQ

“EQ have provided a first class service throughout their dealings with us, culminating in a large Research and Development Tax Credit claim being successfully secured. It’s advice like this that’s crucial to the continuing success of our business.”

Bill Simmons

Wrld3D

EQ

“We have been clients of EQ Accountants LLP for a few years now and have built up a great relationship with them. We have had support implementing new accounting systems, including improvements to our Job Costing, which has greatly assisted our team in pricing for work. EQ have also assisted us in a significant Research and Development Tax Credit claim which was successfully secured, something that we didn’t initially think was applicable to our business. We have found EQ to be knowledgeable and we value their advice and support.”

Nikky Miller

Mozolowski and Murray (Scotland) Ltd

EQ

“Earlier this year our practice underwent a restructure process together with an acquisition. During this time, their in-depth knowledge of the needs of our veterinary practice were invaluable. We value our relationship with EQ, having worked with them now for a number of years.”

Liz Waugh, Finance Director

Kettle Produce Limited

EQ

“For us, what distinguishes them from many accountants is the pro-active approach they provide us with in terms of advising us how to manage our own business efficiently and also planning our growth, whilst minimising our tax liabilities.”

Stuart MacDonald, Managing Director

Balmoral Asset Management Ltd

EQ

“We have worked with the Cupar office of EQ accountants for many years now and have always received a high standard of service and advice, delivered quickly. It is always good to know that the guidance we require, whether on taxation or other financial matters, is just an email or telephone call away. We appreciate the close relationship we have developed over the years with the team at EQ and would have no hesitation in recommending them and we look forward to their continued support in the future.”

Jill Spittle

Related Fluid Power Limited

EQ

“EQ have provided Thorntons with outstanding advice over the past few years, particularly in relation to some areas of crucial importance to our business – both in terms of our medium and long-term strategic planning and through various merger and takeover considerations. They have also assisted us in structuring various internal accounting and business planning strategies.

In our experience, they deliver value for money outwith the normal adviser/client relationship and I would recommend their team to anyone.”

Craig Nicol, Joint Managing Partner

Thorntons Law LLP

EQ

“As a company, we have been working with EQ for over 20 years. Although we have internal accountancy personnel, over the years we have found EQ’s support and advice invaluable, whether this has been for our yearly audits, or providing R&D tax credits support, their attention to detail can only be described as excellent. As EQ has expanded, we have not seen any reduction in in the personal type service they have provided since day one, and we look forward to continuing this professional relationship into the future.”

Roy Henderson, Managing Director

SP Technology Limited

EQ

“As each of my businesses has grown, EQ have supported me in achieving the appropriate business structure. This has enabled me to incentivise my key people in each company with a relevant equity interest, and to optimise the group structure, taking account of commercial risk and tax implications. EQ Taxation deliver an excellent blend of business advisory support and high level technical service.”
